Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band´s summer song for children, “Paletero Man,” is a tribute to the tropical popsicle sellers whose carts are hot weather fixtures in neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The bilingual pop song about “the Mexican ice cream man” is from the Latin Grammy-winning kids music group´s new album Made in LA, set for release this Friday (July 21).
"The Paletero Man is my song in support of immigrants in Los Angeles and everywhere in the States,” Diaz tells Billboard. "The paletero man is a reflection of the hard-working Latino/immigrant? making his dreams come true in America. He brings the flavors of home for many displaced Mexicans.
“This is an immigrant anthem,” he adds. “We can all unite over ice cream. Can't we?"?
